Avon, CO, US

Company:  Beaver Creek Ski Resort

We’re looking for team members whose legendary attention to detail and commitment to phenomenal service comes naturally.

The Beaver Creek Golf Club, nestled against the slopes of Beaver Creek Mountain, is one of the longest established golf courses in the Vail Valley. Opened in 1982, the course was designed by noted course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and is known and respected for its long, narrow challenging fairways and its stunning scenery. Beaver Creek Golf Club is artfully complemented by its impeccably-maintained greens, awe-inspiring alpine backdrop and diverse array of Rocky Mountain wildlife. Both seasoned veterans and aspiring golfers will revel in the astonishing aura of one of the longest established golf courses in the Vail Valley. Precise shot-making is necessary between majestic pines, a cascading creek and off elevated tees throughout the 18 holes on this championship course. The first three holes challenge some of the best, and the last holes lead up to the clubhouse with a stunning fountain and pond landscape in sight. Views of Beaver Creek Ski Area, home of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Championships, envelop many of the lush fairways and greens. The Beaver Creek Golf Club course is located in a gated community and set parallel to Village Road, which leads directly to the world-renowned and European-inspired, Beaver Creek Village.
